Afropunk Fest London is in 3 days!
To get you through hump day we have a mixtape that was created as a nod to Activist, Film Maker and Musician Bree Newsome.
Newsome sheroically removed The Confederate Flag from above the South Carolina Capital on June 27th 2015. As she pulled the flag down, she shouted these words: “You come against me with hatred and oppression and violence. I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today!”
Newsome was arrested and released on the same day. However the internet reacted quickly in the name of campaigns to raise money for her legal fees and petitions to demand she be set free. And quite rightly so! By July 9th, a vote had been taken by the South Carolina House of Representatives and the flag was finally removed.
